Whether you’re single or married, celebrating Valentine’s or GALentine’s (it’s a thang!), everyone can use a little more love in our lives! Why not incorporate some more love in the place you spend the most time- your home!
Here are some easy ways to find a little love in your heart for the place you lay your head at night.
As women, we sometimes only see the imperfections of our homes. Enlist your kids to have a marathon cleaning session, or even better, splurge and hire a cleaning service. There is no time I love my home more than when it’s clean!!
Fill it with things you love
Good reason to use decor: because you love it
Bad reasons: because you were gifted it; bought it 10 years ago; it was passed down, etc.
You get the point. Only use things you love.
Reframe your perspective
Yes, your home may not look like it’s featured on HGTV. But it is pretty great if only because it is a warm place for you and your family. While there may be some things you want to change, think back to the memories you have made there and remember that it’s been a wonderful blessing!
